Mom's Movie Review


My Mom watched The Time Traveler's Wife. She called me and just went on a tirade. When my Mom is angry about something sometimes I am smart enough to open up text edit and write down everything she says. Tonight I was smart. Here is my Mom's review of The Time Traveler's Wife. 

"You know how I wanted to see The Time Travelers Wife when it was in theaters? It was so dumb you wouldn't even believe it's a movie. Is it taken from a book or something? Oh god. I would have been so pissed if I went to the theater. Well, they made a very bad movie. I'll tell them that. I don't know who made it or anything. Oh it's on again I'll tell you about it. That's what made me remember I wanted to tell you. It sucked bad. Well, let me tell you, don't watch it. I'm not joking or anything. I've never seen a movie like that. Who would make a movie like that? Someone bought that and made it and sold tickets? It was on HBO! They must have okayed it too. That was the biggest waste of time and I kept watching it you know, huh uh, no good. Don't waste your time on Time Traveler's Wife. Remember how I tried talking everyone into seeing it? We should be able to get rich somehow if they can sell that to somebody."


During this angry review I couldn't get in a word. I was just laughing and typing. Then I told my Mom that I just typed up everything she said and I was going to blog it. "Oh no. What did I say? Don't."
Then she thought about it a bit and told me:

"Well if anyone has seen it, after you write this, I'd like to know what they thought about it. Maybe you can write that. Any comments are welcome. Good or bad. Maybe somebody liked it! You never know. I don't think anybody would."

I want to hear every movie reviewed by my Mom now. Forget Ebert, give me more Mom. I hope she will make this a regular thing.

Whoa! Not that I was looking to see that movie, but after that rant, there's no way... not even if it's free on Netflix. Thanks, Kelly. :)

saves me a lot of time, listening to your mom :) I would gladly pay your mom to watch movies full time and review them for me!

Reverend Awesome said...

Seriously. Me too. This is the kind of review I would pay good money for.

I didn't want to watch it before the review, but I might consider it now. It could be one of those types of movies where I could make fun of it as I watched it. Kind of like Mystery Science Theater 3000.

I was just updating my Netflix queue, and was browsing the top 100 movies. Guess what number 100 was! Yup, Time Traveler's Wife. I thought of you and your Mother, and how the heck it made it in the top 100. (Must be a lot of people were assimilated.)
